The Prometheus system is a plasma filtration treatment coupling adsorption and hemodialysis (FPSA) aimed to blood purification in liver failure. After separation through an albumin-permeable membrane, plasma enters a secondary circuit where protein-bound toxic substances are removed by two adsorbers; p01, a neutral resin, and p02, an anion exchanger. Plasma is then returned to the venous line, where a high-flux hemodialyzer removes water-soluble substances. We used the Prometheus system in 12… CONTINUE READING
